Amazing Grace

Lyrics

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me. .
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

T'was Grace that taught. .
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear. .
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares. .
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far. .
and Grace will lead us home.

The Lord has promised good to me. .
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be. .
as long as life endures.

When we've been here ten thousand years. .
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise. .
then when we've first begun.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me. .
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

"Amazing Grace" is a renowned Christian hymn that was written by poet and clergyman John Newton and appeared for the first time in print in Newton's Olney Hymns in 1779.

John Newton was born in 1725 in Wapping, London and brought his own experience of seeking grace and redemption to the words he wrote for "Amazing Grace".

As was the case with many hymns of this period, the words of this song were sung to suit numerous melodies but in 1835 it was linked to a melody called "New Britain" and it is this tune we are familiar with today.
